Atilla Ozgur Cakmak (Penn State Center for Nanotechnology Education and Utilization) is the featured speaker for the Physics
Colloquium on Friday, November 11, at 2:30 p.m. in Weyandt 331. The title of the talk
is “Mission Impossible: Trapping the Sun with Nanotechnology in Solar Cells.”
Energy output from Sun is the best resource with greatest
potentials to help meet the global-energy needs. Cakmak’s presentation will discuss the importance of the
nanostructures for light trapping for designing ultra-thin novel solar cells.
research opportunities in nanotechnology, which enable the driving force for
research in solar cells at Penn State University, will be presented. Other
supportive steps like one-year, non-thesis master’s degree at Penn State, and an
NMT capstone semester are new to this program.
